The Iloilo City Government is eyeing the construction of a ‘condominium type medium-rise housing units’ to accommodate informal settlers. Moreover, Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas tasked the Iloilo City Urban Poor Affairs Office to oversee the proposal.
“We will put up a housing project for medium-rise buildings consisting of 130 units in Uswag Subdivision in Barangay San Isidro, Jaro. The same will likewise be implemented in Uswag facility in Barangay Lanit,” states Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas.
The City Government is eyeing three to five hectares in Lanit, Jaro and two hectares in Calumpang or Calaparan for the resettlement facilities.
“In our hope to give shelter to homeless Ilonggos, I have tasked the ICUPAO to look for areas suitable for relocation sites,” adds Treñas.
